Last Eight In: Temple, Southern Miss, Alabama, Boise State, Saint Mary’s, Oklahoma, Wichita State, Cincinnati

First Eight Out: Tennessee, Kentucky, La Salle, Virginia, Middle Tennessee, Baylor, Louisiana Tech, Maryland

Mississippi has been the talk of the bubble the last few weeks. Not long ago they looked so bad we wondered if they would even win another a game…at least away from home. As it turns out, Nashville is pretty much the Rebels’ second home and an SEC Tournament title takes Ole Miss off the bubble and safely into the field. That is very bad news for conference mates Tennessee and Kentucky, which remain our first two teams out.
